I've been searching here and the internet to no avail. Maybe I wasn't wording it correctly. I am trying to figure out how to convert a URL/Hyperlink into one word as I've seen on here in posts to save space. How do I go about this? thanks in advance for any help. Over.

I tried that site, but it just shortens the url. It doesn't convert it to a word. An example of what I'm trying to do is what nmap does on a few of his posts when he has the word LINK or HERE and the site appears.

It is the board code here.

Dig, and look at the instructions.
